Stunning Tuscan farmhouse

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay in this beautiful Tuscan farmhouse which was decorated and fitted out to a high standard. The garden was very spacious, not overlooked with a great pool which we all spent many hours in cooling off from the heatwave that Italy was experiencing. The delightful hill town of Cortona is only a few minutes drive away and is definitely worth a visit or two. There are some great restaurants there amongst its squares and narrow streets. This is a great place to base yourselves with many beautiful places within easy reach such as Perugia, Arezzo, Sienna and even Florence. Very highly recommended. Thank you!

A perfect Tuscan experience

  • 5 of 5

Many others have raved on this site about the beauty of the location, the well-appointed house and charming guest cottage and the hospitality of the owner, Marie. I can only echo all of this and add our heartfelt endorsement. We had never rented a vacation home in Europe previous to this experience, and Marie made the entire process easy and enjoyable. The property manager met us upon arrival, acquainted us with the house and encouraged us to reach out if we required anything at all. The location of this property was fantastic with the Lunghini mercardo just a short walk away for any of our food needs. The owners were lovely and made wonderful recommendations of breads, meats and cheeses. We also enjoyed long walks in the area (including just past the 8th century church across the way and down the road through the little village of Montalla. Marie was nice enough to send some recommendations ahead of the trip and they were spot on! Cooking lessons at Il Falconiere, wine tasting at entocea Molesini and many, many restaurants. Our only complaint is that we didn't have enough time in the week we were there to do even more! While late April is a little chilly, the bonus is that it is low tourist season so we had the leisure to wander the region without huge crowds. Cortona is driving distance to Florence, Seina, Orvieto, Umbria, Montelcino and so much more. Enjoy Casa Sant' Angelo as the perfect spot to come home to after a day of enjoying the beauty of the region.

Fabolus house just outside Cortona in Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

We just finished almost 2 weeks in this house about 3 Km below Cortona. We had easy access to Cortona, and also to Southern Tuscany and the towns of Montepulciano, Siena, & Montelcino. We went wine tasting nearby to famous vinyards and went on Culinary adventures to great restaurants.

The house is architecturally furnished and decotracted in a fine style. The main house had 3 king beds and a accessory cottage is just over the top beautiful with another king bed and private bath.

We did a lot of cooking in the kitchen which was furnished satisfactorily.

The yard of the villa should not be overlooked as they are cared for carefully and to a high standard. The pool was cool and is not heated. It does provide a dramatic backdrop to the Tuscan landscape.

We would stay here again and recommend the villa highly.

Six Texans in Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 6 senior adults seeking an exciting and yet relaxing Tuscany vacation, which we clearly found at Casa Sant' Angelo. The house and annex were clean, beautiful and very comfortable. We started our vacation with 2 days in Venice and drove to the Casa for a 7 day delightful stay. Danlieli's market was essential to our stay with good food, great wines, and 2 well prepared dinners ordered the day before and ready as we returned from our day trips. We enjoyed 3 day trips to Siena, Perugia, and Montalcino/Sant' Antimo. There was good food, fun shopping, history all around us, and inspiration at Sant' Antimo. The quiet days in Cartona and at the Casa were equally pleasing. We rate the Casa and the trip excellent and agree that next time we need to stay longer.

Tuscan Magic

  • 5 of 5

Casa San Angelo is awesome. We have traveled a lot throughout the years and this was truly one of our best vacations ever. The property was more then we expected and the surrounding areas a spectacle. We enjoyed Cortona as our home base and did the most amazing day trips we could have ever imagined. We traveled by car to Florence, Asissi, Siena , Chianti, Montepulciano and Montalcino. The food and wine in Cortona just a mile a way were exceptional. The nights we stayed in we ate from the market that was 2 minutes away that provided an amazing selection of local foods, cheese, pates, meats and home made pastas. A one of a kind experience. The weather was fantastic. Looking forward to going back.

The most amazing place for the best vacation anyone could ever have

  • 5 of 5

The first word that comes to mind when dreaming about the Casa is MAGICAL. Surrounded by a sunflower farm and mountains yet groomed as beautifully as a hotel property, this amazing farmhouse and annex( we rented both) allowed our family the time of our lives.

The staff greeted us like family and set the tone for what warmth the Italian people display to others.

The property is immaculate and authentic with grape vines giving us breakfast shade, olive trees and a large pool cooling us off from day trips to Cortona, Tuscany, Assisi and Florence.

The serenity of the property made us want to stay home even though we knew the rest of the area was too majestic to miss. Each time we came home we just did not want to leave.

The rooms were clean, plenty large enough and cozy in every sense of the word. Our family dinners at home were made from the fresh ingredients from a local market just down the road. We also just bumped into the best restaurant in the world 2 miles away from the Villa. The town of Cortona is much more quaint than portrayed in the movie under the Tuscan Sun- you have to see it to believe it.

I have been fortunate to have travelled all over America and other parts of Italy as well- None compare to the amazing combination of peacefulness, beauty, coziness and charm as found at the Casa Sant' Angelo. As the owner advised us, the villa will be waiting for us to return. I cannot and do not want to get it out of my mind.

You cannot pick a better place. I am definitely going back.
